I had this really bad itch like... inside of my labia, so I took a look tonight. There was a lot of dried up discharge. It was yellow, but I am thinking that is due to the fact it was dried up. I gently wiped it away with a tissue and the itch is still there.

Around the opening of my vagina it seemed to be sort of coated with a white discharge and my labia is generally red.

It seems like only my labia is itchy. Could this be a yeast infection? I've had one before, but it was itchy inside as well as outside.

babybear, have you been checked for vulvar skin conditions? I ask because you seem to be having a lot of infections that cause vulvar pain/itching, yet aren't helped by creams. Skin conditions can often mimic symptoms of vaginal yeast or BV infections.

So, if this is still a problem for you, you might wanna get into your GYN. Other than that, all I can advise is plenty of warm baths/rinses to keep the area free of any (potentially irritating) discharge.

I have really sensitive skin all over my body - my face especially - so I wouldn't be shocked to learn I have a vulvar skin condition. Thanks for the advice, I'm due for a pap next month and will definitely bring this up.
